Fiat Celebrates 120th Anniversary With Three New Special Editions

Fiat is celebrating its 120th anniversary this year and the company is marking the occasion by unveiling a range of special editions at the Geneva Motor Show.

Called the 120th, the special edition package will be available on the 500, 500X and 500L. All models will come equipped with a black and white exterior (other colors will also available) as well as special “120th” badging. Each will also have a 7-inch Uconnect infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay capability.

In the case of the 500X 120th, the model has black mirror caps, black side skirts and chrome window trim. Buyers will also find LED headlights, copper colored upholstery and 16- or 17-inch alloy wheels.

Four engines will be available including a 1.0-liter FireFly Turbo with 120 PS (88 kW / 118 hp) and a 1.6-liter E-torq developing 110 PS (81 kW / 108 PS). Customers can also purchase 1.3- and 1.6-liter MultiJet engines with outputs of 95 PS (70 kW / 94 hp) and 120 PS (88 kW / 118 hp).

The 500 120th is a bit more basic as the biggest changes are 16-inch alloy wheels and fabric / vinyl seats with exclusive pinstripes. Engine options include a 1.2-liter with 69 PS (51 kW / 68 hp) and a 0.9-liter Twin Air developing 85 PS (62 kW / 54 hp).

Last but not least, the 500L 120th has Myron exterior accents and twin-tone 17-inch alloy wheels. Buyers will also find grey fabric and black eco-leather seats with copper accents and 500 logos.

Under the hood, customers have a choice of three different engines. The 1.4-liter Fire develops 95 PS (70 kW / 94 hp), while the 1.3-liter MultiJet diesel also has 95 PS (70 kW / 94 hp). Fans looking for more power can opt for the 1.6-liter MultiJet which cranks out 120 PS (88 kW / 118 hp).

Besides the 500 family, Fiat will introduce a Panda Connected by Wind. Given the model was developed in cooperation with a telecommunications firm, it’s not surprisingly to learn the model has 4G connectivity and a Linkzone 4G Wi-Fi router that allows up to 15 devices to be connected to the internet at the same time.

Additional changes are limited, but the model has gloss black accents, orange mirror caps and 15-inch alloy wheels. The crossover also has special seats and a 1.2-liter engine developing 69 PS (51 kW / 68 hp).
